How to Caculate the "Best"

Hi All,

I have a rating system where user can rate a book from 1~5 marks. I intend
to calculate the "best" book by taking average mark. However, is there any
method that I could take the number of comments into consideration also ?
Say if 100 comment saying the book is 3.5 marks will be better than 1
comment with 4 mark ?
